Reminder: Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks Trip

Yosemite Trip.jpg

Get ready for a weekend trip to the beautiful Yosemite National Park. Yosemite is one of the first wilderness parks in the United States, known best for its waterfalls. You can find deep valleys, great meadows, a large wilderness area, and much more within its nearly 1,200 square miles. On Sunday, you will make our way to Sequoia National Park with the giant trees!

This weekend will be an average high of 25°C. It is best to bring clothes that you can layer. Temperatures will drop in the evening time.

INSIDE UCI – Writing Science and Beyond in the Digital Age

INSIDE UCI - Writing Science and Beyond in the Digital Age

Interested about news media? Wonder how fast-pace the journalism world is with different platforms such as the web, blogs, Twitter, e-readers, newspapers and magazines? If so, come by to see a first hand perspective from one of our Professors, Erika Hayasaki, to learn more about news reporting, feature writing and crafting narratives about complex topics in this changing media landscape.

Erika Hayasaki’s features and essays have appeared in Wired, Newsweek, The Atlantic, Pacific Standard, The California Sunday Magazine, Glamour, The Wall Street Journal and the Los Angeles Times, where she spent nine years as a staff metro reporter, education writer, and New York-based national correspondent. Erika teaches workshops in nonfiction writing and classes in digital storytelling at the University of California, Irvine, where she is an associate professor in the Literary Journalism Program, an undergraduate degree program dedicated to studying and practicing narrative journalism.

INSIDE UCI: Robotics and Wearable Sensors for Rehabilitation: Tour the iMove Laboratory

INSIDE UCI - Robotics and Wearable Sensores for Rehabilitation.jpg

Neural injury, as from a stroke, can cause loss of motor control. To recover, neural pathways must be retrained. Physical therapy that is often prescribed is unpleasant. But what if the retraining was via a user-friendly, fun video game on a HDTV screen? What if the computer gave you a score that you could try to beat it next time? Or what if a robotic device helped you move and instructed you how to make adjustments if your movements were difficult or awkward? What if you could learn to hear and play a simulated musical instrument to help you regain digital control via a musical glove? What if exercise on an exercise machine was combined with a game so that the exercise was fun to do? Would you exercise more? Come and explore a new world combining computers, robotics, and therapy.

Presenter: David Reinkensmeyer, Ph.D., has degrees from MIT and UC Berkeley in electrical engineering, which he used for his dissertation concerning development of therapeutic robotics that speed recovery after brain damage. He was a postdoctoral fellow and research assistant professor in the Sensory Motor Performance Program, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Northwestern University Medical School from 1994–1998. He joined UC Irvine in 1998 and is a Professor in the departments of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering; Anatomy and Neurobiology; and Biomedical Engineering.

This is an “INSIDE UCI” event. An RSVP is REQUIRED on EEE; CLICK HERE to RSVP.
